CIA Manufactured Modern US Literature

June 1, 2018

ErnestHemingway.jpgLeft. Ernest Hemingway was an intelligence agent. The CIA admits this on their own website . See Mathis' full expose .


Miles Mathis says that modern culture is essentially
mental programming by the CIA, an arm of the Illuminati
banking cartel. The systemic destruction of traditional art
is intended to promote "alienation," the satanic view
that human life is inherently meaningless, incoherent, trivial and ugly.
The Satanist is the origin of the modern "anti-hero" -
the man who denies the moral order and therefore 
feels an outcast in society and in the universe. We live in
a matrix created by Satanists. Our freedom is an illusion.
(See Dan Butler's comment below.)


Satanism is the inversion of all spiritual ideals- 

Mathis: "By a constant stream of top-down propaganda, writers were convinced that being solipsistic, quotidian, and creatively modest were artistic virtues. As with painting, science, politics, and every other category, the inversion of the thing was sold as the thing itself."


Makow comment-
Mathis is a brilliant and prolific writer. Although his claims that many sensational murders were faked seem outlandish, his assertions about modern culture are credible.  As a Ph.D. in literature, I always felt modern culture was fraudulent. This confirms it.  I feel betrayed by the education system and society. A highly organized satanic cult has recast Western society in its image.   Contrary views are not funded or publicized. Sometimes you lose your livelihood. Another example of de facto Communism, and how we have been unwittingly inducted into a 
satanic cult.




None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

From Theosophy to the Beat Generation
(excerpt by henrymakow.com)


A reader alerted me to an article just published at the Chronicle of Higher Education by an English professor at Providence College, Eric Bennett. This article is about the Iowa Writer's Workshop, at which he was a student from 1998 to 2000.

riteofpassage.jpgHe admits that the writing programs at the University of Iowa have long been underwritten by the CIA, via the Farfield Foundation, the ACCF, [The Artists and Community Collaboration Fund] and the Rockefellers.

The sentence in the article that is most useful here is this one: Creative-writing pedagogues in the aftermath of World War II, without exception, read Partisan Review, The Kenyon Review, The Hudson Review, and The Sewanee Review .

They breathed the intellectual air of New Critics, on the one hand, and New York intellectuals on the other. These camps, formerly enemy camps--Southern reactionaries and Northern socialists at each other's throats in the 1930s--had by the 50s merged into a liberal consensus that published highly intellectual, but at the time only newly "academic," essays in those four journals, all of which, like Iowa, were subsidized by the Rockefeller Foundation.

As we have seen and will see, they were also subsidized by many other CIA front organizations. The government used the purse-strings to exert control over these programs, keeping them in little pens that Bennett says serve "to venerate and fortify the particular, the individual, the situated, the embedded, the irreducible."

Or, in other words, to keep them small and disempowered. By a constant stream of top-down propaganda, writers were convinced that being solipsistic, quotidian, and creatively modest were artistic virtues. As with painting, science, politics, and every other category, the inversion of the thing was sold as the thing itself.

A 2012 Salon article by Joel Whitney tells us the Partisan Review and the Paris Review [were linked to the CIA] as well.  

Peter Matthiessen, the magazine's founder, has now admitted that in interviews, such as this one  ... that he was recruited by the CIA right out of Yale in 1953, and that the Paris Review was his "cover." That information has been added to the Paris Review page at Wikipedia, but it is a bald admission with no commentary as to how it must affect everything to do with the magazine.

plimpton.jpgBoth Matthiessen and George Plimpton, left, have tried to maintain that Matthiessen was the only one who knew, but--given what we now know from the CIA itself (see Tom Braden)--that isn't believable in the least. When various writers were pleading ignorance back in the 1960's and 70's, Braden flipped the leak, outing them .

He said that all these writers and artists knew exactly what was going on, and [Francis Storer] Saunders' book [The Cultural Cold War] confirms that over and over. So does the article at Salon , which outs both Plimpton and Nelson Aldrich as members of the  [CIA-front] ACCF.

INDOCTRINATION


Salon also tells us the CIA backing was a problem: "By funding a magazine with a New York office that was distributed in the U.S., it was engaged in propagandizing to the American public, which was illegal ."

Unfortunately, Joel Whitney at Salon unmasks himself at the end--if not long before--by saying this: None of which is fair to attach to the Paris Review , if not for Matthiessen's claims that the Review 's ties ended before the ugly stuff, or for Plimpton's failure to disclose the ties that remained.

So in his summation, Whitney is telling you to your face that the greatest crime here is failure to disclose and other white lies? You have to be kidding me! What about the fact that all this was illegal? What about the fact that nothing was what we were told it was?

William Styron said in the first issue, "I think The Paris Review should welcome these people into its pages: the good writers and good poets, the non-drumbeaters and non-axe-grinders. So long as they're good."

goethe.pngWe now know that was total, malicious misdirection, since the whole point of all these magazine was drum-beating.

What about the fact that, all told, at least 9/10ths of 20th century American literature and criticism should now be suspected of being manufactured?

If all these people were working for Intelligence, what is to prevent us from assuming everything they did was Intelligence work, including the novels, poems, and essays?

What is to prevent us from re-reading everything published in that time period, combing it for covert propaganda? You may not think that is necessary, but I for one do.

As you will see in upcoming papers, I have found evidence that is exactly what has happened. It is not just the Beats that are fake, it is almost everyone.

First Comment by Dan:


The fact that 20th Century American "Literature" had a hidden agenda explains the cognitive dissonance most young readers felt while reading it.   This website reviewed the mysterious J.D.Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye' [1],  one of the most disappointing reading experiences of all American high students that were forced to read it.  That's one of the most obvious cases of a crappy novel with no redeeming qualities at all remaining the 'Best Sellers' list for decades, lauded by reviewers. Evidently, the only students who couldn't put it down were the twin assassins of 1980, John Hinkley and Mark David Chapman.

I read Miles Mathis' The Stolen Century this morning.  I give it A+.  'Modernism' was concocted by Marxists.  Marx wrote that 'cultural hegemony'(dominance) is the key to taking over. Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) developed strategies for unseating the 'traditional' intelligentsia and replacing them with "organic" (subversives).  This is when the arts became strictly political vehicles of cultural subversion.  Trotsky became the grand master of what Marxists later termed the "Long March" through the society's institutions, in order to flip cultural hegemony from the 'old world order' to the 'new'.   It's called the Long March because it takes time - a long time.  They've been at it for over century, and now they've moved on from Modernism into "Postmodernism".  

I understood the fact that the publishing industry has this hidden agenda far too late in life.  30 years ago I read the New York Times Book Review every Sunday - religiously.   With retrospect, it's plain as day how the 'best sellers' all my quasi-intellectual friends regurgitating over quiche and Chardonnay corralled our worldview, our opinions, and even our self-image.  

We all read the same books, saw the same movies, listened to the same bands and singers, watched CBS news and listened to National Public Radio and thought we were oh so smart.  The whole thing was sold on "snob appeal".   That's how these things were marketed.

It took the 911 stunt to finally crumble that worldview they constructed in my "open mind" for forty years.  I had to go through a year of dealing with "everything I knew was WRONG", but when you can throw off all that conditioning, you get to reconstruct a worldview based on observation of everything as a mature, objective person.

One learns to discern.   Eventually.   I quit going to Hollywood movies about ten years ago,  threw the TV out of my house seven years ago, and now most of the books I read were published before Modernism took over.

Comments for "CIA Manufactured Modern US Literature "

Tim Fitzpatrick said (June 2, 2018):

The anti-hero narrative of the Judeo-masonic occultism pervading literature and entertainment these days is perhaps no better epitomized than by the recent destruction of George Lucas’ Star Wars saga. Granted, the Star Wars saga is fundamentally kabbalism; however, the original trilogy at least respected the pro-hero plot, the sanctity of love, and was a cinematographic masterpiece with brilliant accompanying classical music (by John Williams).

Now, J.J. Abrams and Rien Johnson have destroyed the legacy of Star Wars by rewriting it to fit the petty wishes of social justice warriors, especially feminists. It has become a mockery—anti-hero filth, with little to no value other than for thrilling special effects. Even it’s core actor and classic hero type Mark Hamill shows plenty of signs of disgust with the direction of the story. You can find interviews of him denouncing the movie right in front of the directors. He knows that something is inherently wrong with it all. His face reveals much while he sits through the interviews. What does it say when first- and second-wave liberals are disgusted with the trajectory of things?

Modern literature and cinematography are no longer about inspiring, providing hope, or showcasing beauty. They are about political indoctrination, with cheap thrills, poor comedy, and titillation thrown in as a bonus.


Sheri said (June 2, 2018):

Of course this revelation jolted me as each awakening revelation has. This does not and cannot compare to the revelations of Satanism, slavery and the children.

We have work to do collaboratively, on a wide platform; and we do have this platform in the web. It will be exciting and it will force us to rethink our opinions of the literary work and world of this period. But more importantly, it will force us to delve deeper into history and reprint "lost books" of all types from those who have been storing the writings of the past.

It is our job to forensically examine the origins of the "matrix writings" based on life at that time, the attitudes and ultimately their affect on the wider populace.

Having been a young person who had no time or even access to the "great writers" as they were called, gives me now at this point in my life an unbiased attitude toward them. I will be putting their puzzles together backward - as opposed to those who carried these works in their lives.

My hope is to work in the literary world to disseminate writings and books which will have a direct impact on education in the world.


Doug P said (June 1, 2018):

Great article, no doubting its truth. We see the nihilism everywhere in the tattooed skin of young people, a sure sign of nihilism. I won't read anything that is less than 100 years old, but I read philosophy and law. I can't seem to get interested in even the novels by Solzhenitsyn or Dostoevsky. Crime and Punishment was done by the BBC, I watched that. I wonder how close it is to the book. It would be interesting if someone who knows something about lit to compare the BBC movie with the book.


Allen M said (May 27, 2017):

The "literature" is all pagan-lie-ridden-abominable- and filthy. Per the " Protocols". ALL the 'public' schools are a 666 LIE. Perpetual dumbing down accomplished via satan's boyz- the ones who sell themselves for naught.

Thank you, Henry, for another fine article. The majority of 'men' became "Freemasons" are are CLEARLY not men. A man stands for TRUTH. The "secret" they boast in makes them perverts- and that is what the US is.

My little brother was ritually 'done' when he was 9. It ended his life, and the "church" defended the Mason who did this evil. Now it is evident why the US is the satanic enabler. Like Sodom-mind-controlled via ritual abuse as children.


Sid Green said (May 26, 2017):

I can only enjoy Russian literature, I guess because it comes from a genuine culture (Christianity) and isn't an artificial attempt to sling dung at all beauty.

Kundera and other wanna be French people are seductive to unstable adolescents but their message is sensual, empty, and damaging. The unbearable Lightness of being should be called the unbearable lightness of the author's mindset.

There's a bunch of French crap across all Europe including Nabokov (wanna be french) and French stuff is always pure Frankism ( I see that now)
Russian literature is the only genre with genuine works, it seems the rest were either literally contracted by the illuminati, or at very least, the author was sucking up to the Frankfurt school by pathetically attempting to make everything seem absurd, making for crappy reading and spiritually and mentally damaging ideas
I never read Catcher in the Rye I just wrote down what the teacher said on the tests.

It strikes me now that most of literature class was actually just extremely bad advice class on how to not care and ruin your own life. I was almost directly told to drop out of school as a "life style choice". They do not know how to teach Russian literature because it transcends their degenerate minds. Much western European "literature" is no better than Frankist demonic ramblings of a disturbed mind. Camus was a profligate degenerate. We should look to Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and not the likes of Nabokov for inspiration


Tony B said (May 26, 2017):

Wow, Henry, this article brought out thinking people.

In my school years I was more interested in words - reading and writing - than in anything else. However, the school English literature books largely repulsed me and I refused to read what seemed stupid and meaningless to me. Now I know why. It truly was as repulsive as that moronic trash labeled "modern art."

Early on, I took all published anything with a grain of salt if it was promoted. Much later I learned from Mike Piper, whose "Final Judgment" on the Kennedy assassination outsold anything the establishment brought up on the subject by fantastic numbers, that the advertised "best sellers" were always a flat, likely CIA, lie if you thought that meant the highest volume sold or read.

It was not until I began reading pre Vatican II Catholic writings that I found straight, non-propagandistic historical, as well as truly moral, information concerned with true humanity. Post V2 writings, however, have exactly the same brassy ring as the protestant readings of most of my life. It is laughably tragic that people in the English speaking, heavily talmudicly influenced, protestant run, massively masonic, extremely monopoly capitalistic greedy, world, blame Catholic anything for their problems.


Shawn said (May 26, 2017):

Great article on the CIA and modern literature. Of course only a handful of Publishers exist to filter and censor content. But who really reads anymore? Thus the Intel Literati Octopus has downsized and diversified. Schmancy Tom Clancys behind the Games, Social Media, and indeed-all pop culture... and sub-culture as well. Literati to Technorati in 20 years for the Gatekeepers.


Greg F said (March 30, 2015):

Whenever a wealthy elite dominates society, which is practically always, of course the services of the intellectual and professional class will be purchased and controlled by the wealthy elite.

The form of government is irrelevant to this process – all that is needed is for the rich to dominate the society, and the intellectuals and professionals will be at their beck and call.

Naturally, nearly everyone wants to work for the people who possess the wealth. The only remedy for this is the flattening of the wealth pyramid.

The wealthy have used their control of the media, the entertainment industry, and the educational system to brainwash the poor into thinking that a flattening of the wealth pyramid would be unethical


Gene said (March 29, 2015):

Education is all about brainwashing and it has been going of for a long time. The first recorded mandatory education (literacy) was by the Pharisees between 300 BC and 200 BC. It worked so well to establish Pharisees control of the population that they used it again.

Back in 1823 (if my memory serves me properly), the Rothschilds assumed control of the Vatican treasury. He who control the money, controls the organization. Two years later, the Jesuits descended upon American to open schools in rural areas across the country while a Jewish woman, I forget her name, did the same thing in the cities. The stage was set for the brainwashing of youth for Jewish control. At the same time with the power of money, the Christian universities were being morphed into Jewish controlled institutions. By about 1900, education was becoming to be mandatory in the cities and desired by the rural population. By the end of WWII, education in America was mandatory and intense brainwashing commenced.

The US government has been controlled by the Jewish banksters since 1789 since the Constitution which was their idea (see the Protocols about constitutions). The banksters used the government, the Catholic Church, and the Freemasons, to accomplish their goal all under the guise of helping the children which is the dead giveaway that something was amiss. Most certainly, other “western” societies got the same treatment.

There is nothing mandatory that is ever in the best interest of humanity. If something is a good idea, it does not have to be mandatory.

I determined that education was just farce when I was 14-years old while I was sitting in a tree contemplating why I wasn’t doing well in school. I did not realize the real ramifications until 40-years later.

After years of research to determine what was really going on, the hardest thing I had to do was flush away everything that I thought was true. Everything was just an illusion keeping me from realizing the truth. Admitting the fact that my whole life to that point was based on lies led to the solution (the teachings of Jesus) that was in front of me the whole time going unnoticed.

Deception is the devil’s favorite tool. Admitting to being a victim of illusions and flushing them out of your mind is the most important thing anyone can do that really seeks true freedom and happiness.

So, do not feel betrayed. Feel joyous that an illusion has passed. The more room you make in your mind by flushing out illusions, the more room is made for the truth to be realized.


James Perloff said (March 29, 2015):

Once again, Henry, the Protocols are validated. “All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions – aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, even anarchical . . . .Those fools who think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our opinion.” (Protocols 12:11-12)

I doubt that any major “literary movement” of the past few decades—or major movement within ANY of the artistic genres, for that matter—was allowed to occur without Illuminati approval and purpose.


Dave Martin said (March 28, 2015):

How have the narrow and the gauche
Flaunting "econ," "psych," and "soash"
Eclipsed their intellectual betters,
Our once-exalted men of letters?
They've surely never shown that they
Have more perceptive things to say
About life's deeper mysteries
With formulae and indices
Than our tested bards and sages
Whom we've trusted through the ages,
But for no reason demonstrated,
Our literati abdicated.


Andrew said (March 28, 2015):

We would have to read discourses from before the time writing and paper were invented to escape the influence of intentionally indoctrinated mind control fallacy (misconceptions)…

The point Robert P makes in his comment quoting Luke 4: 5-7 is that programs of spiritual perception control (rejection of virtues, laws and gospels) are as old as the hills.

Today the forces of evil are much more potent.

There has never been a mind control instrument like TV; it has become ubiquitous and so addictive that the NWO can make most people (85%) believe anything.

As Plato taught LIFE IMMEDIATE ART, so if they control literature, they control intellectual life itself.

And life (culture) is still The Waste Land T. S. Eliot wrote about almost 100 years ago.


Catherine said (March 28, 2015):

I had noticed all these posts in the Irish media re mental health with the implication that everyone is mentally ill and should talk openly about it. Yes that mental health issues are normal and that every human e-motion is a mental disorder.

Then you write this amazing article to confirm mental hygiene.

You also reminded me of the use of ECT on abused children in Ireland to burn out all memories of sexual and physical abuse and so silence the child victims. No psychiatrist was needed either - just the word and a nod from a social worker.
In Ireland and other countries the judicial training is that all women are mentally ill - no need for a psyche assessment.

This has been going on for over 20 years here in Ireland, with no one daring to speak out.

We have a history of locking away anyone who goes against the norm.


Andy said (March 28, 2015):

The root cause of the degradation of our modern culture is because of the lack of spiritual grace in souls, as given through faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ and the sacraments of His Catholic Church.

Jeremiah 10:14

"Every man is become a fool for knowledge, every artist is confounded in his graven idol: for what he hath cast is false, and there is no spirit in them. They are vain things and a ridiculous work:"
John 6:54-55 (The Holy Eucharist)

"Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day."


Colossians 1:28-29

"Whom we preach, admonishing every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. Wherein also I labour, striving according to his working which he worketh in me in power.


Who would dispute that the best works of man were during the apotheosis of Catholicism in Europe, from Medieval times to the Renaissance? Thus said Our Lord;

John 15:4-5

"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine: you the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing."


If we are not subject to Christ, then we are subject to satan and that includes ordinary folk, not just the wiful satan worshippers;

John 8:44

"You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do."

Job 41:24-25

There is no power upon earth that can be compared with him who was made to fear no one. He beholdeth every high thing, he is king over all the children of pride.


Al Thompson said (March 28, 2015):

I have a vague memory on my English classes in college. But what did stand out at the time was the dark and depressing content. Going to college was one of the worst experiences I've ever had.

Perhaps the whole idea of college from the govtards point of view is to pummel
the young person's mind with this depressing garbage; where hopelessness is the key ingredient.

Most of the teachers and professors were of the communist, liberal, or socialist group and their ideas were beyond stupid. To me, getting a four year degree would be like drinking the Kool Aid at a Jim Jones party.

No thanks, I quit to the despair of my family and friends. To them, I was destroying my future by not getting that piece of paper that said that I endured communist indoctrination and now my mind has been turned into mush. This was their idea of success.

Looking back, I think I made the correct choice. I ended up working for myself rather than go the corporate route. That meant that I wouldn't be subject to layoffs and I made more money. While my friends were getting laid off in the Carter era, I was working and doing well.

In most instances, schools as we have known them are really mental abuse centers. These are places that destroy the mind. If mind control is promoted by the CIA, then there's even more reason to do something else. Really, who wants to sit in school for 16 years. At the end of that time period, people will be dumber than when they started.

Tony B said (March 28, 2015):

Now I know my instincts were correct when, while still a young man, I quit reading the promoted stuff because it was all crap in my mind.


Ann Diamond said (March 28, 2015):

I studied and taught creative writing and yes, there is a very noticeable 'spook' atmosphere in many of these departments. I suspect it's worse now. Remember my article about how military intelligence runs Canadian Lit? I also have stumbled on a pedophile subculture in the Can Lot scene, which had (and still has) a very insular gang running it. Both Americans and Brits seem to drift into positions they never, ever leave, and they bring in like-minded acolytes.

I think the intelligence connections of some creative writing departments are getting more and more blatant. For some Cold War background, see the film THE GOOD SHEPHERD where a professor-operative recruits agents through his fiction seminar.


Robert P said (March 28, 2015):

You state, “I feel betrayed. A powerful and highly organized satanic cult has cast Western society in its image.”

Have you never read.....

Luke 4:5 – 7.

5. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world (Past and present) in a moment of time.

6. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

7. If thou therefore wilt worship me, (Obey my agenda) all shall be thine.
